Gibberellic acid increases fruit firmness, fruit size, and delays maturity of 'Sweetheart' sweet cherry


Gibberellic acid increases fruit firmness, fruit size, and delays maturity of 'Sweetheart' sweet cherry



Journal of American Pomological Society 56(4): 219-222



ISSN/ISBN: 1527-3741

Growers in British Columbia, Canada and the US Pacific Northwest use gibberellic acid (GA3) to improve fruit quality of sweet cherries (Prunus avium). A single spray application of about three weeks before harvest has become the standard procedure. The objective of this trial was to determine if multiple applications of GA3 can further increase fruit firmness and size, and delay maturity of 'Sweetheart' sweet cherry, the second most important sweet cherry cultivar in British Columbia.
